Description

This presentation featured a discussion of the concrete reality of a dynamic Jesuit parish in Boyle Heights (East Los Angeles) that serves a largely immigrant community. In liturgy, prayer, education and community action, Dolores Mission parish responds to the unique needs of the community grounded by a common Ignatian spirituality and a commitment to justice. One of the most concrete examples of their commitment to migrants is the Guadalupe Homeless Project, a sanctuary shelter that provides 60 men (most of them immigrant day laborers) with food and shelter. Over the past two years, the community has been engaged in concrete prayer, fasting, action, and advocacy on behalf of federal immigration reform. The participants in dialogue discussed their faithful witness, their own experiences, and their strategies for action.
